Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
By William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
 
HAD I the heavens’ embroider’d cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:        5
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
